Not much chance of that.

1955-'57 are known as the shoe box cars due to their styling or Tri-5 cars.

1958-'64 was the next series of cars that shared the same frame and a lot of parts across the production run.

Then came the 1965-'70 series of cars that shared a perimeter frame with a four link coil suspension rear ends. The 1965 and 66 look very much alike, the only thing different was the tail lights; but as with any first year car there were a lot of less noticeable changes between the 1965 and the '66 which is closer parts wise to the '67.

The next series was the 1971-'76 years when the B-body grew to it's biggest size and greatest weight. Last of the American ideal of big cars with big V8's these land yachts have all but sailed off into obscurity thanks to poor rust protection and the gas embargo of the seventies.

Finally there were the 1977 '90 years that had triangulated four link rears like a Chevelle and actually had shrunk down dimensionally the size of a 1970 Chevelle, just a lot heavier as mandated by roll over protection, side impact door beams, five mph safety impact bumpers, collapsible steering columns and hoods that would fold double instead of cutting you in half on an impact.

The bath tub Caprices (1991-'99) were the last of the rear wheel drive V8 powered cars. The Impala SS was reintroduced for a three year run starting in 1994, and proved you could have fun with a four door sedan. This series were just reskinned 1977-'89B-bodies with ugly styling, under the sheet metal everything interchanged.

As noted above Chevy makes their cars in batches and part from one series with the exception of powertrain do not normally interchange.

Right, different kind of Seat. You can possibly make it fit, but it wouldn't be very original. I've got just what you need, but I see that you are not just down the road from me.
